From The Santa Fe New Mexican:
Feb. 25, 1913: The citizens of Santa Fe owe something of a duty to themselves and to their city in the way of a little care of the appearance of our thoroughfares. In spite of Charles Down’s sarcastic allusions to Santa Fe in the Alamogordo News-Adviser, the city seems to have had attraction for others than members of the Legislature, for tourists have made it an objective point in their travels for many years.
Feb. 25, 1963: Taos — Two Dixon youths accused of shooting into an Española school bus have been bound over to District Court for trial on charges of assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the incident. The pair, 19- and 20-years-old entered pleas of not guilty. They were accused of firing a gun into the loaded bus near Pilar as it was returning to Española from a basketball game at Taos.
Feb. 25, 1988: Washington — President Reagan cautioned the nation’s governors Monday against pressing for costly federal solutions to the problems of welfare and child care. His remarks to the National Governors’ Association were labeled a disappointment by one governor who said Reagan should be backing the governors’ bipartisan welfare reform bill in the Senate. New Mexico Gov. Garrey Carruthers and his wife, Kathy, are attending the governor’s conference. Carruthers had made welfare reform an issue of the New Mexico legislative session, and his basic proposals were approved. The Legislature made participation in the programs voluntary, unless the federal government required otherwise.
